Real Zaragoza have made a move for Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The Daily Mail says Zaragoza have jumped to the head of the queue for Santa Cruz.

The Paraguayan striker is in talks with Lazio about a £3million move to Italy after rejecting a loan move while Blackburn Rovers are also keen.

City boss Roberto Mancini admitted last night that Santa Cruz would be allowed to leave.
